involving an internet sales tax. amazon an overstock.com were appealing the online levy imposed in new york state. but it's a battle imposed with results. what does this mean for online shoppers? >> all i can think about with this story is taxes. this is what it tells us we know now that the price that online retailers get is probably going to go away because that differential is really about tax. they will now be on par with the brick and mortar retailers and they won't have that edge they've had. we'll probably see less showrooming where people go to a store, they look around and pull out their mobile phone and buy the item online. we're going to see a lot more bureaucracy, states find municipalities making it so hard, so complicated, they're going to be dealing with a very tangled tax web. >> the potential tax revenue, though, for manile of these states that they would lose is huge. >> that's why these states are saying i want amazon to collect taxes coming into products coming into our state. we need the revenue. >> especially after the financial crisis. >>

fleur, commissioner moeller and clark, welcome, happy holidays. i have one question on the tax credit and start with you in the sugar. as you know the next ten years some wind turbine orders will get tax credit hours for every hour they run. this tax credit was designed to kickstart renewables. and yes yet, it lives on the spe way and being a major part of the grid. at least 12% in my state of texas capacity. but some markets have seen prices as low as negative $41 per megawatt hour as operators get the credit and run whether that power is needed or not. granted that is an extreme example, but they can settle a lawsuit taxpayers make them whole. that moves markets back home on the new power construction in texas that public utility commission chairwoman nelson has said and this is a quote for the market distortion is caused by the renewable energy incentives one of the primary causes this distortion makes it difficult for other generation types to cover the cost and discourages investment in the new generati generation. and while the ptc isn't the only driver of the market distortion, it is a s
tax dedicated to water and sewer infrastructure. hunter: that sales tax counts for about a third of the revenue of the department right now. franklin: we got 75% of the voters to agree to tax themselves so that their children and their children's children could have clean water because we're investing in it now. hunter: there were no alternatives. the infrastructure was in dire straits. a lot of people didn't want to believe it had to be done, but it had to be done. what came out of those lawsuits by the upper chattahoochee river keeper were two consent decrees, focused on overflows. the intent is, city of atlanta, you need to keep the flows in the pipe. narrator: with the help of the funding the city raised, atlanta has been implementing an asset management plan that evaluates and addresses their infrastructure issues. hunter: it's a continuum. at one end, you have your regular maintenance that you do every day on the system, and at the other end, long-term planning so that every year we're repairing, replacing the right things, and we don't have to do it all at once, which is,
to over 2 thousand but they couldn't pay that kind of tax for that growth and we are the only couldn't in the state of california that had the payroll tax to chu and i and kim got together with tweeter and thought we could forge something but not just give it to them therefore we looked at the whole of market street. we used to having some great places on market street and i understand some of the history that occurred there part of it was because we didn't do transportation well, that caused a lot of the businesses downfall so we survived with a challenge we we felt maybe this was the way to do is it is create an area where we can provide that tax break but only if you locate this and deliver on the jobs you promised. that was a good 2-way street that started an important conversation 0 how we talk with new companies and visit them in do seduce their needs. we have today 4 thousand 8 hundred technical companies because. and i count every single one of the folks that work there >> the consumption on mid market goes from 10 the street to an. we got some pretty good skews because with

and tax payment history, the equity and property value. if the funds are dispersed for the work and the current property owner pays installment on the regular property tax bill. to be successful the program must be easy to understand for the consumer. and so we're lucky that we're in this situation now after hitting a roadblock a few years ago with the agency. the governor put funds aside to mitigate any risk to fannie and freddie so we're comfortable moving ahead with this program and buildings are responsible for 56% of the greenhouse gas emissions and residential is one fiveth of that total and this program will allow a affordable way to reduce energy consumption and the city gets back a powerful tool to meet the sustainability goals and with other programs and sf energy watch and upgrade programs we intend to leverage as much -- which we intend to leverage as much as possible in this program. restarting pace will help us increase the amount of efficiency under the grid and create local jobs and economic investment that can't be out sourced and we are excited to work with
